In the set of the HBO series Boardwalk Empire seven years ago, Naomi McDougall Jones had a fateful meeting with a vampire. Jones, an Aspen native, had a small part on the show, and when she met an extra who self-identified as a “vampire” she beckoned, “Tell. Me. Everything.” Fascinated by this subculture, Jones learned all she could about these creatures of the night—indeed, they do drink human blood—and the seed of her new film, Bite Me, was planted.
Since her inauguration as U.S. poet laureate in September, Tracy K. Smith has been on a mission to meet Americans in small towns and rural areas around the country and to discuss the role poetry plays in their lives. The author of three poetry collections, including the Pulitzer Prize-winning "Life on Mars," and the acclaimed memoir "Ordinary Light," comes to Aspen as part of the Winter Words author series on Tuesday. She made it to town over the weekend despite the government shutdown.
The French pop artist, who has been shrouded in mystery and controversy (and fame) since the 2010 Banksy documentary “Exit Through the Gift Shop”shared his story with the world, has filled the Cha Cha Gallery on the Hyman Avenue Mall with collage, painting, sculpture and many new Aspen-themed pieces. Arriving in Aspen for the first time last week, Brainwash immediately started producing Aspen-themed works to complement his pieces from the last decade now hanging in the gallery.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
